Called ‘Rooms by Rankin’, the photo series pays homage to the style, creativity and individuality of the much-loved saloon car and celebrating three key models – XF, XE and Mk 2.
For the third and final instalment, Rankin created ‘Period Drama’ for the Mk 2, a bespoke, white-out room complete with a mesmerising pattern of black polka dots.
Speaking about the unique partnership between the legendary car brand and the internationally renowned fashion and style photographer, Rankin said: “The Jaguar Mk 2 is a very special car – undeniably beautiful and well-proportioned.
“I wanted to create something that celebrated the Mk 2’s form and its heritage, but also had a thoroughly modern edge to it. That’s why I chose to use polka dots.”
Jaguar Design Director, Julian Thomson, added: “Polka dots are perfect for the Mk 2. They can be wistfully nostalgic and they also have a modern currency that makes them a timeless classic.
“Rankin has managed to produce a truly stand-out creation. It’s elegant and has a captivating charm that we all appreciate at Jaguar.”
The MK2 was launched in 1959 at the Earls Court Motor Show and boasted a graceful design that is widely considered to have epitomised the era.
